WR Notes: Justin Jefferson has 17 catches for 312 yards and two touchdowns in two games since the Vikings pledged to get him going. The runway should remain clear against a 49ers defense rate stat-ing well against the pass but offering no troubling individual matchups. Jefferson’s only real Week 12 concern is San Francisco dominating time of possession and limiting Minnesota’s volume. … With 13 carries over the past two weeks to go along with his receiving threat, Deebo Samuel has been operating as the fully-realized version of Curtis Samuel in the 49ers’ fully-established offense. The Vikings struggle on the ground and have been springing leaks through the air, making Week 12 a potential Samuel blow-up spot in this 49-totaled affair. … Ja’Marr Chase is in the first sustained lull of his OROY-leading campaign. We would hope the Steelers’ extremely injured defense can get his big plays and touchdowns going, though all three of Joe Haden (foot), T.J. Watt (hip, knee) and Minkah Fitzpatrick (COVID) are trending toward a return. Chase’s TD odds are just so good any given week. … The Bills have been getting two-high safetied to death, but as Dwain McFarland points out, the Saints love single coverage, which Stefon Diggs thrives against. It’s been a good, not great, year for Marshon Lattimore. Hopefully Diggs pops in this modestly-totaled contest.
